Following the latest advice from Public Health England regarding the coronavirus, the Horniman has taken the difficult decision to close the Museum to the public from Wednesday 18 March until further notice.

Our 16.5 acres of beautiful Gardens, café kiosk and weekly Sunday Horniman Market will remain open.

We will continue to update and our social media channels whilst the Museum is closed and will advertise its reopening well in advance.

We are asking the public to adhere to social distancing guidance in the Gardens, around the café kiosk and weekly Sunday Horniman Market.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult period. Your ongoing support is so very important to us, and we will continue to share stories and objects from the collections throughout this time.
